Welcome to L.S.V. Sheherazade!
Are you looking for a nice association with many kinds of activities? Then this is exactly the right place!
In the past, there had been a separate study association for master students Middle Eastern Studies named Hikma, but that association has been absorbed by L.S.V. Sheherazade which focusses on both bachelor and master students. That is why the majority of our activities are in English.
We regularly organise Chai Time’s or MMIL’s (Monthly Moment In Lipsius) where you can chat with your fellow students but where it is also possible to meet students from other years. Besides that, there are monthly lectures, often in English, about actual current themes around the Middle East. At the beginning of the semesters, there is also a second hand book selling during which you can study books from other students. Furthermore, you can visit many other activities like movie nights, a career event, study-trips, gala’s or symposia. Everybody is welcome!
L.S.V. Sheherazade membership only costs €20 per year. You can become a member here.
You can find us during the EL-CID and HOP week in August, the Introduction Day in September and in the halls almost daily. If you have questions, you can of course also always send an e-mail to sheherazadeleiden[at]gmail[dot]com
We hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming activities!
